Magnetic Jail Blinds Offer Increased Safety and Security for Jails and Prisons

Updated: Oct 10, 2022

If you work in a jail or prison, you’ve likely dealt with a shortage of workers at your facility. It’s a serious nationwide issue. Jails and prisons across the country are facing extreme staff shortages. About one-third of federal officer positions are vacant, and state prisons are experiencing staff shortages of nearly 70 percent. The correctional officers, civilians, and medical staff that remain at these facilities must work long, stressful hours in what was already a not-so-safe environment, where inmates often outnumber officers in drastic numbers. The safety risk only increases every time an officer retires or quits due to burnout.

In addition, most facilities lack the funding and support that’s needed to address these safety concerns. Incorporating new steel frames in doors, windows, and holding areas is extremely expensive, and many local, county, state, and federal facilities simply do not have budgets for projects like this. However, simple solutions that will increase safety and security for jails and prisons are closer than many agencies know. Best of all, those solutions will not break the budget!

Magnetic prison blinds or magnetic jail blinds are an amazing and readily available option that facilities can choose in lieu of costly new construction. Custom-sized magnetic jail blinds easily attach to any metal frame, door, or window, which means facilities get the same safety benefits as they would with new construction, but they’re spared the expense of hiring architects or project managers or ordering expensive hardware and devices. The blinds can be used to limit what inmates see when they’re held at intake, in the rec yard, on medical floors, in transfer cells, or in court holding cells. The blinds can even prevent male and female inmates from seeing each other or create a separate juvenile area.

As a former corrections deputy, I understand facilities’ challenges, budgeting, security, and safety, and that’s why jail blinds are Wild Buffalo’s only product.
